Deduction of LIC premium and other deductions like deduction of loans given to employees being based on express or implied contract with the employee concerned, the same may be effected as per the terms.
Continuity of service will depend on the final verdict. If exonerated, naturally, the period of suspension will be counted as period worked and service counted for continuity of service and on the other hand, if discharged from service the period of service will not be counted as service period.
